    depends on how humble or honest the person speaking is. :)

    but i think in general its intended to stand for humble.

    I don't think it really matters what the h stands for because it still boils down to a platitude. If it does matter then saying honest opinion is a bit redundant while humble opinion has more meaning.

    Some people give dishonest opinions.

    My honest opinion is that I am the most humble man in the world.

    you are close, but not quite the MOST humble.

    Fat tie - fat knot? It's just a FIH, isn't it?

    Stitchy, I hate to start off the year this way, but I don't think this is a successful use of a light tie on a darker shirt.

    Looks to me like it just needs to be cinched down a little tighter. Could be that the tie is too thick to do this though... :(


    Please elaborate!

    Shirt should be lighter or the tie darker.

    I struggled finding a co-ordinating PS this morning so opted for none, but I'd appreciate some suggestions.

    stitch is against the FIH. he only ties half windsors...which usually look decent, but on this tie it looks odd...knot looks wider than the tie.
